Talking Heads

Talking Heads - 12x12 Original Remixes - 1999 - EMI Records (UK) [Also released as "Talking Heads - Remixed" in 2001 by EMI Records (UK)

Some suprisingly good remixes of songs by the legendary David Byrne and Talking Heads. Quite interesting and unusual. If you would like to hear the very best of Talking Head's music, then their 1992 album, "Popular Favorites 1976-1992: Sand in the Vaseline," is a brilliant compilation album.

America's response to punk music was incubated in clubs like New York's CBGBs. From this hotbed of musical dissent came Talking Heads, arguably the greatest of the post-Pistols "alternative" acts from America. Unlike contemporaries The Ramones and Blondie, Talking Heads never posed as punks; theirs was a more sly, subversive challenge to authority. David Byrne's nervous stage presence implied we were all a breakdown away from madness; the rest of the band quietly went about their business exuding the sort of youthful confidence that truly scares the establishment. Their first single, "Love -> Building On Fire," introduced the herky-jerky pop/art sound with which they identified on Talking Heads: 77 and More Songs About Buildings And Food. Under the stewardship of punk patron Brian Eno, the Heads explored world music on the ambitious Fear of Music and Remain In Light. As the '80s dawned, the Heads temporarily split, with David Byrne, Jerry Harrison, and the husband-and-wife team of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (as Tom Tom Club) planting the seeds of successful solo careers. The group reunited in 1983 to a surprisingly receptive public, graduating from college sweethearts to cultural icons. From this point on, the Heads channeled their strangest ideas into videos, leaving their music more streamlined and accessible. 1988's Naked did signal a return of sorts to world music, but it would be the Heads' last album together. David Byrne and Tom Tom Club continue to release albums; the trio (minus Byrne) also released one album as the Heads. © 2005 Connolly & Company. All rights reserved
